LONDON — The British Fashion Council will announce today that it has named Stuart Rose to replace Nicholas Coleridge, who has been chairman of the body since 2000.
Rose has been in the retailing business for 30 years, and is widely credited with turning around the Arcadia Group, parent of Topshop and Miss Selfridge, which was sold last year to entrepreneur Philip Green for $1.2 billion. During the Nineties, Rose was also key in building the Burton Group, which later became the Arcadia Group after a split in 1998.
Hermès is launching a Laundromat pop-up shop in NYC - dubbed Hermèsmatic - where customers can bring their old scarves to be dip-dyed by an expert. Get all the details on WWD.com. #wwdnews (📷: @donstahl)
